Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

I am a 33 years guy having little bit high bp, cholesterol & depression. How does taking linseed( alsi) will help me?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Have breath problem and low voice due to vagus nerve tumor surgery. What is the treatment options.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Unfortunately you have taken the social conditioning of "how one should be" to your heart. You need counseling asap Take Bach flower remedies pine, gentian and crab apple. Two drops each mixed in some water thrice daily for few weeks.

Mr. Lybrate user, usually for forgetfullness there might be reasons which are functional, or pathological. Mostly pathological reasons like geriatric dementia, parkinsons, alzeimers etc willeffect in old age. But here as per your age, that defntly would be due to physiological/functional, as you already have mentioned, its becoz of your mental tensions, worries, any disappointments, tension/anxiety regarding career, most anticipation, higher sensitivity for issues, more thinking nature. All these are the reasons for your problem. You can comeback to normalcy by following few steps likeadopting +ve attitude, taking every thin in good manner, without worrying, thinking for salvation, if its not possible by u, then take anybody's help, likeur inmates, frnds, family membrs whom you feel like more intimate or good to suggest u. Try to follow meditation/pranayama strictly. You can learn these from any yoga centres, art of living, isha foundation etc like teaching centres, where you can learn yoga, practicing differnt techniques of breathing exercises, pranayama, meditation, which will defntly help you to get releieved from your naxiety, unnecessary over thinking, panicky etc. Try to think that every problem is having its own solution, some times it may take time, but defntly that will be solved with your effort. Do not go for any allopathic meditations& at the same time do not get any addictions for getting temporary relief which ultimately will spoil your future. Try to take help from any psychologist for councelling. Take care.

I lost somebody since there I feel very depressed and tension what are the symptoms.

I lost somebody since there I feel very depressed and tension what are the symptoms.
Dear Lybrate user, you are under going Grief, which is a natural response to loss-Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never let up. Most important factor in healing from loss is having the support of other people. Even if you aren’t comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstances, it’s important to express them when you’re grieving. Sharing your loss makes the burden of grief easier to carry. Wherever the support comes from, accept it and do not grieve alone. Connecting to others will help you heal. Turn to friends and family members /Draw comfort from your faith /Join a support group/Talk to a therapist or a counselor. Good luck.

Mr. lybrate-user you are just 24 years. In my opinion I feel you have few more years to enjoy yourself, be secured for a job and get married. You have time and age on your side to be not worried about all these immediately. And regarding financial stabilisation it is tough to achieve because human mind is never settled in that. So my advice is to be happy and enjoy life at this moment.

Overweight problems are always related to high blood pressure and anxiety. Anxiety is one of the most distressing emotions because of the co related physiology is so severe - heart pounding, stomach churning, shaking, dizziness and variety of other symptoms give you further cause to worry. The physical symptoms of anxiety play a great part in this over estimation of threat perception, as they are seen themselves as significant indicators that something is seriously wrong. Participating in physical activity reduces these symptoms. Meditation and relaxation therapy are also useful. Mindfulness exercises help a lot in anxiety related issues.

Dear lybrate-user, masturbation is a normal physiological sign of you growing up. When your testosterone level is high when you mature to manhood, you feel the urge to masturbate. Though biologically mature at 16-18 years sociologically or economically you are mature to get married. So accept that masturbation proves that you are a man and it is a normal outlet before marriage. But you are suffering from depression which needs antidepressant treatment. Both rexipra and prothiaden are good antidepressant tablets. You can take them during examination also. It will give you mor confidence to give your best. Restart both tablets and go back to a psychiatrist - not neurologist. Depending on the improvement, he may increase the dose.

Hi I am newly married boy. It's arranged marriage. After 2 months later of my marriage my wife disclose me her four yera relationship with a boy but there was no physical relationship made during that period. After that I am in depression,. I am very confused, and feel that I made a mistake after marriage of this type of girl. What should I do tell me I am taking pills for sleep. Problem of headache occur. Please tell what should I do?

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hi. You are feeling distressed, betrayed and thinking too much. Look at the other side. Your wife put in so much trust on you that she opened her heart to you by telling honestly about her life before marriage. She had all the options not to say anything but she chose to share a very personal part of her life with you. You may have difficulty digesting it, but if you see her faith in you then probably your anger may reduce. What she did before marriage has nothing to do with today. Anybody can have a relationship that may not have worked for them and so they move on. She has moved on too. Taking her past and judging her for it is not going to help you in anyway. Instead of brooding over something that has happened before and not at all related to your present, it will be appropriate if you can build a healthy relationship with her now. She is a human being, just like you, with feelings. So give her your love, which is her right and lead a fulfilling life. Past is past. All that you have now is your present, so live it to the fullest. If you are unable to make peace with yourself then do consult a counsellor to explore your value and belief systems.

My husband is 47 years old. He takes alcohol in the interval of 30-120 days. Once he starts drinking alcohol means that continues for at least one week. During this period he becomes very aggressive and out of mind and behaves almost madly. When he don't drink alcohol he is a perfect gentleman but bit short tempered. Whether this behaviour is normal? Please suggest.

If your husband loses control over his behaviour and if he is aggressive after consuming alcohol, then that is a cause of concern. He needs de-addiction treatment. Please take him to a doctor when he is sober. The doctor will prescribe some medicines for him to stay away from alcohol and also to treat withdrawal symptoms if any. He needs medical and emotional support.

I am very depressed. I want a partner in my life so that I can make happy my life. What should I do?

I am very depressed. I want a partner in my life so that I can make happy my life. What should I do?
That sounds like a good idea for you. If I was the woman, I would certainly not want to be married to you just to solve your depression and to keep you happy. All this sound selfish and you must look at what you are bringing to the marriage. You have to be there to satisfy the woman too. In all this I suggest that you look to treat yourself and then consider proposing to a woman. You have to be an asset in a relationship and not a liability. Meet with a counselor and work out your issues, and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor, please do so and comply with both therapies. Marriage plans can wait; your wellbeing is important.

Dear lybrate-user. Masturbation is normal, natural and is never a health problem. You can safely masturbate thrice or four times in a week. Worrying creates anxiety. Stop worrying. Indulge in games and hobbies. Take care.

I feel very depressive when I am lonely please help me to come out from this problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I feel very depressive when I am lonely please help me to come out from this problem.
I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

U need surgical correction for loose breast. To increase your breast size: no medicine can increase breast size. No peels or massage can ever alter size. Breast implant is most effective and common procedure to increase size of breast. In this procedure silicon implant of desisted size is pushed under breast tissue. Procedure is done under anesthesia so there is no question of pain. Patient can go home in 3 to 4 hrs. You just need to wear supporting bra for some time and can return to work next day. Externally the look and feel of breast is just like natural young breast. Within few hrs you will regain your confidence and have attractive chest figure. In future pregnancy there is no problem in breast feeding. There is no risk of any major illness or disease associated with this procedure. Implants available in different size.
